Just found out that the '/s' in 'format C: /s' formats the drive and leaves
space for the system files from the 'sys'
command; but some say the sys com also transfers a copy of command.com,
while other sources don't! I can
tell you that 'format C:' does not place a copy of command.com, whereas
'format C: /s' does;(Imean the format
command by itself, without any 'sys')  also they say
that with sys command, not only the target drive has to be free of files,
but there must be no volume label
after the formatting. kurt     <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>.
